The model was used in digital rendering for the show and is a part of the John Copeland Babylon 5 Collection. The model is signed by two unidentified crew members. This Vorlon ship was used by the character Ambassador Kosh, stationed on Babylon 5. In the show, the ship is suspected to be a sentient, living creature, telepathically linked to the Ambassador. It uses bio-organic technology and has no visible hatches, entranceways, or propulsion systems. This ship makes several appearances in the series and is a subject of great curiosity among the crew and staff of Babylon 5.
Title: Gangster N’Grath Model Dimensions: 20.2cm x 27cm Media: Resin figure on wooden base Maquette #2: The model is a production maquette for the 1994 science fiction television series Babylon 5. This figure is of N’Grath , a criminal kingpin and gangster, who operated from Babylon 5's notorious “Down Below” sector. Loosely referred to as a “legitimate businessman” by his fellow criminals, N’Grath was a member of a non-oxygen breathing, bipedal insectoid race of unknown origin. N'Grath was eventually removed from power in 2262 (Season 5), but remained a fan favorite for the remainder of the show.
